Mailbox Monday...The Obamas

Well my mailbox has been taped shut since January 1st.  I've been participating in the TBR double dare, reading from my shelves for three months.  I've read only 9 books, the shelves are still brimming over and here we are with me and my library card and credit card in front of the computer.  I need to read the Hunger Games, so that the first order of business, and I've place a couple of requests from the library for audio books. Cloud Atlas and Every Last One are on the way.  The only book I received in the mail is a book I won The Obamas. I'm putting that on the pile for now, when the election stuff starts to heat up I'll read it.




Thanks for hosting Cindy.




In my reading bag for this week is:  The Mysterious Affair at Styles, Agatha Christie, (on my shelf)
The House at Tyneford, I'll be picking that up today from Chapters  (read a long with Books and Movies).

I did get some books these week, as you know; but I'm also reading from my shelves this week.

Enjoy your reads, and thanks for stopping by my blog.

I am trying to read from my shelves for the Spring Reading Thing Challenge, so far not going so good! I just bought another copy of The Hunger Games on Sat. and it was gone that same evening. My son grabbed it, wonder if I will get it back!! ;o)

Enjoy your new book! It's so hard to read from your shelves when there are so many more books calling your name. ;)

Cindy said...

I feel as though I am the only one who hasn't read the Hunger Games yet and I think I need to get on that asap.

thanks for stopping by and linking to IMM. I am looking forward to checking out your blog. Happy reading

Enjoy your win! I haven't read The Hunger Games but my daughters have - they enjoyed it and the movie.

Hi Irene,

Thanks for stopping by Fiction Books today, it is good to 'meet' you.

Reading from my TBR mountain would be a real novelty and cause for celebration in our house!

I like the sound of 'Cloud Atlas' and 'Every Last One', although I am not a fan of audiobooks.

I am a great fan of Agatha Christie and as a tenager I read almost all of her books. I make it a point never to re-read a book, although so many fellow bloggers have stirred up fond memories of the Christie books, that I have broken my own golden rule and re-read a couple of them.

Have fun with all your illicit purchases and have a good week.

Yvonne

ENjoy the Obamas -- I'd love to listen to that one.

Mystica said...

I'd like to get to the Obamas myself. Agatha Christie - one of my favourite authors and always for me a comfort read.

I did the TBR dare too, and didn't do that great. I caved and read some library books that came in on hold, and had books to read for the Indie Lit Awards too, so I only truly ended up reading 7 books from my shelves. What I loved about it was that it has me constantly looking for my next book off of my shelves now though. :)

I joined the 2012 TBR Challenge and so far haven't made a dent. Some shiny new book always comes along to tempt me.

Vicki said...

I have this waiting for me to read. I need to read a lot more from my TBR shelf.

Dear Irene, when you read your Obama book all I can say is, I hope you don't become nauseated.

Parabolic Muse said...

Oh, Christie is one of my favorites, and it's been so long since I read her (or, anyone). I hope you enjoy The Hunger Games. I only read the first one because I just don't have time, but I'd love to read the Obamas book, also. My goal last year was to read a book a month. This year I'm still not getting it done. I know you'll get more reading done than that!!

Teaser Tuesday...Victoria Line, Central Line

I've been in a reading slump.  I swore in this 150th celebration of Canadian confederacy I would only read Canadian authors.  And I h...
